SEED: The Untold Story

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

SEED: The Untold Story is a feature-length documentary featuring Vandana Shiva, Dr. Jane Goodall, Andrew Kimbell, and Winona LaDuke, following passionate seed keepers protecting our 12,000-year old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight a David and Goliath battle to defend the future of our food. In a harrowing and heartening story, these reluctant heroes—including Central Maine’s Will Bonsall, who is prominently featured in this fascinating and important film— rekindle a lost connection to our most treasured resource and revive a culture connected to seeds.  An audience favorite at this year’s MIFF! Unrated. 93 Min.
